Agreed.

Re: how many grand slams will nadal win in 2009

I have gone for 1

French Open is nearly a guarantee. Maybe too much of an ask for him to win the others this time round

Re: how many grand slams will nadal win in 2009

At least one. RG is a given and he'll have good chances at the AO and at Wimbly (if he remains healthy of course).

Re: how many grand slams will nadal win in 2009

Obviously he is still the man to beat on clay (especially over 5 sets), so the French Open is his to lose. The soft grass at Wimbledon is ideal for his troublesome knees (and he is one of a few players who moves well on this surface), and if the surface isn't much faster than 2007, he has a legitimate shot at that title as well. Australian Open isn't out of the question either. US Open should continue to elude him...

I'll go with 1 as there are several players stronger than him on hard courts, and it is so tough to win the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back (even if he has already done it once before).

He won't be winning any hard court slams.
